Celebrate The 85th Year Of Anchorage’s Famous Winter Carnival
This Year’s Coin Features a Polar Bear and his Paw Print
Each year we mint the Official Fur Rondy Collector Button design into our medallions. Since 1986 we have minted the Anchorage Fur Rondy design in bronze, silver, and pure gold medallions. The silver and gold relief medallions are limited to a maximum mintage of only 2500 combined. Only in Anchorage, Alaska can competitors square off in outhouse races, create massive and complex snow sculptures, and dash to keep clear of reindeer on 4th ave. These are just a few of the fun events to compete in during the Fur Rendezvous festival that has been going on during the month of February since 1935.
These medallions are available in bronze, 1 oz .999 fine silver, 1 oz single gold relief (24k plating on part of the silver coin) and 1 oz. double gold relief (24k gold plating on both sides). The 1 oz medallion is similar in size to a silver dollar and is dated 2020. They are packaged in an airtight container and handsome gift box. Other sizes are available and are made into nice jewelry pieces. The reverse is our Land of the Midnight Sun design.
